Coming from a family of golfers, sport has been an extensive part of my life from a very young age.
However, being a typical young girl and not wanting to follow in the golfing footsteps, I convinced my parents to take me horse riding - eventually I they did and horses became a fundamental part of my life.
This interest combined with the many benefits of STT led me to train at the prestigious Oxford School of Sports Massage (OSSM) for a BTEC Level 5 Professional Diploma in Soft Tissue Therapy - the highest accreditation available in the UK.
I am a member of the Institute of Sport and Remedial Massage (IRSM), have professional indemnity insurance provided by Balens, and hold up to date first aid qualifications.
Hi, I’m Cirra, the face of CT Massage Therapy.
I offer completely tailored treatments using a variety of very effective techniques aimed at reducing muscular pain and promoting recovery, achieved through massage and an achievable rehabilitation plan, designed specifically to be practical and personalised to your needs.
After completing my GCSE’s, I left school and went to work full time in the equestrian industry, gaining several professional qualifications. During my 14 years with horses, I worked for advanced event & dressage riders and have groomed at top level competitions. With my own horse, I am aiming for my first Advanced British Dressage test in 2023.
Along with the highs, I have also experienced the vast lows of horse riding and suffered a few bad falls, getting concussion more times than I care to remember. The result of which was living with chronic neck pain for many years, so I know first-hand how debilitating chronic pain can be. Through trying many different treatment options for recovery, I discovered the wonders of Soft Tissue Therapy. That is what initially piqued my interest and became the inspiration behind my career change and retraining.
